Passenger and cargo traffic continue to grow at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport. November marked the 14th consecutive month that the airport experienced a rise in passenger activity, according to a GSP news release.

November’s passenger activity was up 13% compared to November 2017 and cargo activity was up nearly 6%, according to the release.

“We are pleased to see these numbers continue to grow,” Dave Edwards, GSP’s president and CEO, said in the release. “In 2018, GSP welcomed a sixth commercial airline, expanded service with existing airline partners and saw airlines use larger aircraft during operations at the airport. That level of activity contributes to the growth GSP is experiencing.”

GSP had 220,191 passengers in November 2018 compared to 194,779 passengers in November 2017. November 2018 also included the start of Frontier Airlines twice-weekly service to Tampa, Fla., according to the release.

More than 10.4 million pounds of cargo passed through the airport in November 2018 compared to 9.8 million pounds in November 2017, the release said.

Greenville-Spartanburg Airport District began providing fixed-base operator services, including fuel sales, in 2017. Fuel sales were up nearly 19% in November 2018 compared to November 2017.
